My current research focuses on the nexus between media and democracy in post-colonial societies. Specifically, I investigate the impact of the news media on politics and public opinion in Sub-Saharan Africa. My scholarship has appeared in journals and as book chapters. I received my Ph.D. in Politics (Communication) from the University of Limerick (Ireland) and M.A. in Media and Communications from the University of Leicester (UK).
- PhD, Department of Politics and Public Administration, University of Limerick, Republic of Ireland. Project: What has been the effect of Nigeria's regionally concentrated media on the political process since 1999. Has this concentration helped or hindered Nigeria's democracy?
I was born and raised in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria and migrated to England and later Ireland. There, I returned to college for a master's degree and doctoral studies, specialising in media and democracy. Currently living and teaching in South Korea.
I am interested in music, religion and sports.
